World Cup 2010: Brazil vs. Chile Live Stream [UPDATED]
These two sides have met dozens of times in recent years and already know what to expect from each other. They have met twice at the World Cup and on both occasions the Selecao netted four goals, winning 4-2 in the 1962 semifinals, which Chile hosted, and 4-1 in the second round at France 1998.
But La Roja are still a good team with a lot of talented players. They have shown some outstanding flair in South Africa and should not be taken lightly. Under the supervision of coach Marcelo Bielsa, they will be more confident this time around that they can defeat the five-time champions.
“I believe this is a different Chile,” Brazil coach Dunga told reporters. “They are a now a different type of team, much faster. It’s a team that enters into the pitch to play and in order to overcome a team such as Chile, we would have to respond and play in the same way.”
Meanwhile, after serving a one-game ban, Kaka will be back in the starting XI and the Real Madrid star will be looking to attack the Chilean back line that will be missing central defenders Gary Medel and Waldo Ponce who are both suspended. Kaka missed the final group match against Portugal because of a red card in the previous game.
The match kicks-off at 20:30 CET (2:30 p.m. ET).
UPDATE: Brazil beat Chile 3-0 in Johannesburg to set up a World Cup quarterfinal against the Netherlands, thanks to goals from Juan, Luis Fabiano and Robinho.
